Muchmore introduce their new line of Fleta ZX Sting “Outlaw” brushless stock motors. Offering a patented sintered Neodymium rotor design and short stack stators the motors are meant to offer up to 30 percent more power compared to a legal motor. Available as 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T variant all motors are built using the Flow-Max II all-aluminium can for improved airflow and cooling and they sport a distinctive red anodized aluminium timing plate for even better heat dissipation. The motors also feature Grade 5 bearings, silver-plated heavy duty solder tabs and sensor connector protective guards. The outlaw variants are designed for “open” stock racing as they do not comply with the current IFMAR, ROAR, BRCA or JMRCA rules.

German company Absima introduce the Thrust BL 1/10th brushless speed controller and motor combo set for the use with RTR or entry to intermediate level kits. Starting with the speed controller, the 45A rated ESC is housed in a compact plastic case and it features a large heatsink and an integrated fan unit to reduce the temperature during operation. The 2S-compatible controller offers 8 degree fixed timing, a 6V/2A BEC system and automatic battery detection for NiMH and LiPo packs. The controller comes pre-wired with a T-plug connector and includes a 4-pole 3421kv brushless motor with aluminium heatsink can and pre-wired gold-plated bullet-type connectors.

New from Speed Passion come the V4.0 Stock electric brushless motors. Designed to meet EFRA, BRCA and ROAR specifications the motors build on the V4.0 Modified series in terms of can design but they offer improved cooling vents for better heat dissipation and lowered running temperatures. Taken over from Modified motors is also the new end bell design that incorporates a plug-in system using bullet-type connectors over the standard solder tab design used by other companies. The motors come in a range of windings including 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T, 21.5T and 25.5T variants.

Novak introduce the new Activ8 V2 brushless speed controller and the HD8 sensored brushless motor for 1/8th scale electric buggy and truggy racing. Starting with the controller, it is of a pure sensor-based design to offer the maximum in drivability and power output. The case features internal shock protection using silicone cushioning to keep the internals from becoming damaged during hard landings, and a gasket seal keeps the elements away even on very dusty tracks. A full-coverage heatsink with direct contact to the Mosfets ensures maximum heat transfer and reliability which is further supported by a large fan unit with fan guard. To feed even the most power-hungry digital brushless servos the controller sports a high-current BEC system with programmable 6.0V to 7.2V output and up to 7A peak current. Software features like Novak’s own X-Drive for a smooth throttle feeling and NovaBrakes for a connected and controlled brake feeling round out the package. All software features are user customisable using the on-board programming feature or Novak’s new Pit Wizard Plus programming box.
